Newport, RI – Marina of the Month AUGUST
August 31, 2011
Newport, Rhode Island, “City-by-the-Sea” has many fabulous marinas. One of the perks of being a waterfront business in Newport is being able to dock our America’s Cup, 12 Meter Yachts at them all! We thought we’d give you a glimpse of some of the views and amenities at these great marinas. Whether you are visiting Newport with or without a boat, these Newport marinas offer more than just dockage! This month let’s check out the Goat Island Marina.
Goat Island Marina is located on an island oasis in the heart of Newport Harbor. Goat Island has a long history which includes home to a military fort during the American Revolution, torpedo manufacturing for the US Navy, and more recently serving as host to the Tall Ships Festival and world-class sailing regattas. If you are looking to experience the “City-By-The-Sea” in a quiet relaxing atmosphere then the Goat Island Marina is the perfect Newport dock for you.
Goat Island is also home to some of Newport’s hidden gems. The Regatta Place is a fabulous event facility off the beaten path in Newport. Imagine your next corporate event, family outing, or wedding ceremony on the docks overlooking luxurious yachts and Newport Harbor. Spectacular!
And a not-to-be-missed, but sometimes forgotten, dining spot is on the northern tip of Goat. Located at the Hyatt Hotel, Pineapples on the Bay offers a laid back, Caribbean atmosphere. This is the perfect place to enjoy a fabulous Newport sunset!
